The first movement ends on a dissonant (transitional) held chord, a rest, a light bar, before the second movement begins, indicating that while the second movement is not to follow wholly without pause, they are not wholly separate movements either. The finale is Allegro in some parts, Allegro vivo in others (with a brief D minor introduction).
Note:(Nº 30), 28 July 1847 issue, p.251, has a review of the recently issued Schuberth piano/orchestral parts.
Premiered probably no later than 1853 (if that late) - (based on a somewhat snarky (especially when the ellipses are filled out) 5 November 1853 letter by von Bülow to Liszt suggesting a performance was planned)- "Charles Mayer is roaming the streets, mad in love for a young Russian pianist... who is going to perform his Concerto symphonique in a charity concert" (Chopin: Pianist and Teacher: As Seen by His Pupils, p.168)
